Written answers (Question to Education)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 223 and 224 together.

The major building project for the schools referred to by the deputy is currently at an advanced stage of Architectural Planning, Stage 2b - Detailed Design, which includes the application for statutory approvals and the preparation of tender documents. All statutory approvals have been secured. The schools share the same site and the building project will be delivered as a joint project.

The schools and their Design Team have submitted a Brief Change Report to my Department which is currently under review. A response will issue shortly.
